What Factors Are Considered When Designing a Concrete Ramp?
The first consideration should be the purpose of the ramp. For example, ramps that need to comply with the ADA guidelines for accessibility must meet certain requirements for slope, width, run length, and texture. The slope is a representation of the change in elevation between the starting and ending points, and it is calculated by dividing the difference in elevation by the ramp’s horizontal length. A run can be an entire ramp, but it is commonly used to describe the individual sections of a ramp that changes direction or is interrupted by flat platforms. As a rule, ramps and runs with steep slopes require more effort to transfer loads.
Better access means a greater appeal to a wider range of customers and the general public.

Minimal maintenance makes this a hugely important asset to your project.
Affordable option for wheelchair access, which is important for ADA compliance.
Simple to make them blend in with surroundings, meaning they are adaptable and complement the immediate area.
